  1. IMSCC files

    It would be very useful to be able to import IMSCC files into teams, in particular to intergrade course materials from Canvas LMS to Teams.

  3. Automatically sharing included sound!

    I don't understand why would you want to share screen without including sound. In my class, we always need to listen the shared material and sometimes we can't hear. That's a really big loss of time.

  4. It would be nice to have multiple tabs open for files.

    Jumping between files in groups that are located in different places takes a lot of clicks. Enabling multiple tabs to be open would make it possible to have one file open on one tab, and another file on another tab.

  5. Folder 'assignments' for students

    It would be great for students to have a folder 'assignments' where all the assignments from different subjects (with deadlines) would be placed. It would be easier to organise work.

  6. The video volume is too quiet. Make the volume enhancer increase the volume even more.

  7. Folders for Sway and Forms

    As an educator who is delivering all lessons asynchronously, I use Forms and Sway on a regular basis for hundreds of students. I need a system to organize these files and find them quickly if needed. I'd suggest being able to create folders for Sways and Forms.

  8. Save files sent in chat to file tab

    When files get sent in chat feature they automatically get saved into the files tab which allows all participants in the chat to have access and edit the files.
    This is an issue my Statistic Lab Class is currently struggling with while we try to do a group project over Teams

  9. The ability to download the lectures and watch it without internet.

    I would like if Microsoft Teams can download the lectures and gives us the ability to watch them without needing to the internet like Netflix.  I can watch the  episode after download it without internet. This feature will give me chance to watch the lecture any place. Especially, the place that has not have internet service.

  10. Richer integration with Google Drive

    I'm working on possibly rolling out Teams to our staff next Fall, however we are considered a "Google District" and therefore are struggling with a few items. My suggestion (if possible) would be to allow sharing of individual files within the Files tab of Teams. Also, the system should be able to pick up whether it's a Doc, Slides, or Sheets file with an icon to represent.

  11. Change the default download folder

    It would be very helpful to be able to change the default download folder in the settings. My default download folder is always the desktop and not the folder 'downloads'...

  12. PDF File view zoom shouldn't change when switching PDFs.

    I prefer to have the default zoom of pdf files as 'Window width', it is annoying to have to keep changing it, it should remain as whatever I set it.
    If the zoom is 150% when I exit, it should be 150 when I enter.
    Small QoL feature, much appreciated.

  13. Channel selection when posting to multiple classes

    When assigning to multiple classes, allow teachers to post to the same channel within each class (i.e., Chapter 1 channel)

  14. Delete saved file in teams after file uploaded in my work

    After a file is uploaded and then removed, and then the same file is added, the name changes to "filename 1.filetype", where is the file "filename" saved, so that it can be deleted and after reupload of the file, there is no " 1" added to it

  15. Change Default Download Location On MS Teams

    I use many teams and channels in MS teams, but there is no option to download individual files to separate folders. It is very confusing. Instead, I think it would be easier for most users to choose where to save the files before downloading them.Also, the downloaded files will be displayed in the download folder of the MS teams only after they have been downloaded.Instead, it will be easier to use if the download section shows what files we are downloading and their progress.

    -Thank You!

  16. Don't send user back to beginning of Files

    When a user exits out of Files, it sends them back to the "General" page with all of the folders. Instead of this, it would be best if Teams simply exited to the tab in which the currently open file resides

  18. Please display the size of files under files section.

    It would help students to determine how long will it take to download the class material/file.
